I can't believe you didn't have printed labels for those pvc storage tubes. I'm appalled and have lost all interest in further following this thread.
Haha. I do have a couple sweet label makers but sometimes I go all peasant with the sharpie.
Cleaned up the area under the stairs sat. No before pics, but picture just a pile of shit. Managed to fit all the jacks and oil drain etc under there. Added hooks for the smaller jacks, handles, etc. And a couple plastic bins for funnels and the hand pump.
Picked up a second vise so I could have one at the fab bench (walking across the shop is hard). When I made the welding table I added two receiver tubes for mounting a vise or whatever else I may want to use. Plus its easy to slip it out if its in the way. I purposely left the tube long so I could side it out for more versatility.
On this episode of Anal Garage we're going to individually label every tool in the shop using our computer generated spacial guide map...
It srsly drives me crazy when everything gets out of hand. It honestly takes quite a bit of work just to keep things from being a total mess.
It doesn't take very long to get messy. Mine's a little out of control right now and I'm going to have to take steps soon.
Thought maybe Id share some projects I do in the shop that dont need their own thread.
Have moms Z4 over for an oil change and a detail.
Pulled the wheels to check the brakes, figured Id clean the barrels while they were off.
Clayed the whole thing while it was on the lift. Was super nice to stand / sit and get to the rockers and bumpers without being folded in half.
Since the wheels were off and I just couldnt help myself I scrubbed the fender liners quick. A little Megs APC 5:1, a scrub brush, a shit MF towel and like <20 mins....like new.
And cleaned up the interior. That rough textured vinyl or w/e is a bitch to get clean. And the steering wheel was nearly all light grey with hand who knows what, its now black again
I don't know where you find the time...but I admire your work very much...
I get lots done 830p to 1am a few nights a week.
Sealed moms Z last night, oil change tomorrow.
Then I had to wash the truck too. Yesterday by work at the end of John St they were sawing the road to fix the lines for the traffic signals they just fucking installed. I had to drive through it wet and ended up with this caked on "mud" that was more like concrete. I wouldnt hose off at all so out came the buckets. Fuckers.
Picked the hottest day of 2017 thusfar to work on the tablesaw. I pulled the top off, cleaned it all out, lubed up everything (pretty sure it hasnt been done since it was new in 1997), and made a quick plate to take up the space around the port for the dust collector in the cabinet.
Not a perfect fit, but good enough to get most of it going in the right direction vs just piling up around the black funnel piece.
Then I took a few mins and hung up a couple shelves I had lying around, and organized the bench a bit.
Also finished up moms Z's oil change, so thatll be out of the shop tonight.
